NEW BROCKTON, Ala. (WDHN)—Coffee County School Superintendent, Kelly Cobb, along with her administrative staff says
early indications for the new school year point to a “large” overall student increase.

At the end of last May, there was a “total” of around 26 hundred pre-k through 12th graders on four campuses. In the first week of this school year., there are already more than 28 hundred students. There are now five campuses with the addition of New Brockton Middle School.

Cobb says parents want their children in coffee county schools.

Cobb says high-quality teaching, along with a general increase in population in the New Brockton and Zion Chapel areas’ is leading to much of the “higher” student numbers.
